     February 25, 2018, I went to see the Marvel superhero movie The Black Panther. The Black Panther is one of my favorite Marvel Superheroes and even superhero in general. The movie was a pleasant surprise. The attention to detail, mixing new technology and old culture, the story progression, and the character development all combined to make this a great film.

    A huge part of the story was the culture and technology mix. When mixing something old with something new, there are a lot of challenges but it seems as if this movie accepted and actually took the challenge to the next level. The culture was inspired by African culture, and when you watch the movie you really can tell. But, they had to add new and even futuristic technology with this culture, which seems difficult. Making everything futuristic and still recognizable is a difficult task,  but this movie pulled it off.

    The characters were well developed, and while watching the movie it was sometimes difficult to tell who exactly was the good guy and bad guy and even who was the main character. Fans are ready to see more of the Black Panther character in the upcoming Avengers movies and the Black Panther sequel.
